Yea lol watercooling and retail warranty, doesn't make a lick of sense. Like gaara said watercooling is for serious overclocking. And even the slightest overclocking on your part and you can say bye-bye warranty.

Therefore, retail versions and their silly warranties become useless as overclocking voids you warranty anyways.
Meh, they can't tell if you OC'd it or not, it's all based through the BIOS on your motherboard that controls it

I've run more than that on a 560w PSU....but basically yours should last for quite a few years

I think they can tell, don't ask me how they can tell, I just think they can.

Yeah, I think they do have a way of determining the speed the processor was last running at, not positive, but I'm fairly certain they do.

They probably won't care though if it does fry, playing dumb is a good approach.

Am I the only one getting the weird google background? :S

I don't plan to overclock, or at least more than a TAD, maybe 100-200 MHz, but I doubt it. I just want a quiet system.

That's odd. That looks like hacking or something.

If your not overclocking, and the price doesn't matter, then 3800+ all the way.
